Disappearing Hand Trick – Right Hand Drift

Valeria Bellan is working on a paper towards her thesis. Her work involves various illusions. I’ve helped her make an illustrative video to accompany one of her papers.

The article, accessible through Researchgate is Untangling visual and proprioceptive contributions to hand localisation over time; Valeria Bellan, Helen R Gilpin, Tasha R Stanton, Roger Newport, Alberto Gallace, G Lorimer Moseley; Experimental Brain Research 03/2015; DOI:10.1007/s00221-015-4242-8

Having been a participant in the illusion, previously I can attest that it’s quite a shock to discover that your hand has disappeared.
